No question, Ko Tao has some of most postcard like beaches anywhere in SE Asia.
KoTao is little; 21 sq kilometer and 50% of that too steep to get to.Ko Tao is a amazing island northeast of Surat Thani in Thailand.
On June the 18th 1899, the then king of Thailand King Chulalongkorn (Rama V 1868-1910) visited KoTao and left his monogram as evidence on a huge boulder at Jor Por Ror Bay next to Sairee Beach.
Departures and arrivals were on the local coconut boats, and even then delays of several days were common practice, so back to the hammock and the world of dreams, the boat will come another day.
Every now and again progress can be a wonderful thing, fortunately Ko Tao has kept its chilled atmosphere, ]it is,it's] still nigh on impossible to find a crowded beach.
